The plot of the manga
Yasumura’s comic series takes the isekai genre. It follows the story of a man being transported into a fantasy world that changed his life forever.
The main character, Kinji, is described as a lazy man and as someone who lacks any kind of work ethic. He is a “layabout in his modern life.”
Everything changes, though, when he suddenly finds himself brought to another world. It’s nothing like a grand fantasy of a hero’s place. On top of that, he is immediately put in a terrible job.
As revealed in the synopsis, it says: “Now enslaved by an evil mining company in a fantasy world, Kinji’s about to really learn the meaning of hard work!”
The Dungeon of Black Company is expected to unveil more details regarding the TV adaptation soon. For now, fans can go through the five published volumes.
